Halloween will be here before you know it, and here at Craftwell we start our decorating early! So, when we saw today's guest designers project, we knew we had to share! 

But lets, let Kimberly give you all the details on creating this awesome project!

Star Light Globe Supplies
  • Craftwell eCraft Electronic Cutting Machine
  • Echo Park Apothecary Emporium 6x6 pad
  • Tim Holtz Vintage Distress Ink
  • Scotch Fast Drying Tacky Glue
  • Star Light Globe SVG set by KimberlyRae

I think you will be amazed how easy these are to cut and put together.  You will want to Illuminate your entire home and even outdoor patio!
Ohhhhh...the possibilities are endless!

First, you will need the Start Light Globe SVGs, which you can purchase for a special price for this tutorial and come complete for your eCraft.
Also, I've made the cut file with score marks for ease of folding.

Let's Begin:)
Open your ECRAFT PRO SOFTWARE and find your Star Light Globe SVGs -place them on your mat where you desire and cut.
I'm using Echo Park Paper Company papers on pressure 2.5, no tabs and no mat/stabilizer. 

Once your middle sections are cut pop them out and score like this:
Now is the time to INK the scored edges, if you like.  Then....
slightly score the star tabs.  You want them to be up a tad so when you glue it has something to hold on to... 
 I also inked the edges of the stars...but I ink everything! LoL
Then glue the tabs and the very edges of the inside of the star and adhere to the middle section....
Also, you can... 
Insert lighting into the cut out on the top piece-provided with your cut out.  Or you can put a battery light
inside before gluing it up.  I used the mini lights- FUN!
Use without lights, for a fun display, too :)
illuminate a room instantly!

Impressive huh?! We are loving that soft glow it gives a room, and we bet this project would work great for Christmas time too!  Thank you, KimberlyRae Ford for sharing today's project!
